Economic Forecast with Dr. Mira Farka – As The World Turns: Balancing Growth & Inflation in an Unbalanced World
Webinar Sponsored by United Agencies Insurance
Please join us on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 11:00AM (PDT) for a very important webinar entitled: “As The World Turns: Balancing Growth and Inflation in an Unbalanced World”
The world that has emerged post-pandemic is not only more complex but is also beset by new challenges and some that have been long dormant: a multi-decade spike in inflation, rapid rate hikes, higher energy costs, unprecedented labor shortages, persistent supply disruptions, and continued flare-ups in a once-in-a-century pandemic. After flooding the world with liquidity for two years, the Federal Reserve is embarking on the most aggressive rate-hiking cycle since the late 70s. Supply and labor shortages have crimped growth and are expected to persist for a while longer. The Russia/Ukraine war is unlikely to end soon and will have real meaningful impact for the world economy. Stock markets are jittery, the world is on edge.
There is no question that the path of this expansion has become much narrower now compared to a year ago, perched precariously on a cliff with stagflation-like abyss on one side and a recession-depth gulf in the other. Will the economy manage to avoid either one? Will growth continue? This presentation will address these issues and more, such as:
• Will the expansion continue?
• Will the Fed successfully engineer a “soft-landing”?
• Between Scylla and Charybdis: Stagflation or Recession?
• World on edge: what are the consequences of the Russia/Ukraine War?
• Is the market in for a correction?
• Will labor shortages and supply disruptions persist in 2022??
• How long will the housing boom last?
